Back in 2020, to get hold of these tokens, players were required to watch live matches on either the mobile app or on their official website. This took a few extra steps but now earning these tokens has become easy, thanks to the growing YouTube platform. However, in order to earn tokens, players’ Battle.net account must be linked to a viewing platform, much like it was last year on the Overwatch League website.

For every hour of live Overwatch League matches watched on compatible platforms, players will earn 5 League Tokens. The system records the viewing time of the players, so if someone watches 30 minutes in one session and 30 minutes later, you’ll be given credit for the complete hour. One thing players need to remember is that only live matches are recorded as viewing time.

Players need to go to “Settings” on YouTube and then to “Connected Apps” on the left-hand side. Then, find the Battle.net link under linked apps and click “Connect.” Players will be able to acquire Overwatch League tokens after logging in with their Battle.net account. When live games start on April 16, players can start getting tokens by watching them. Players will get 5 tokens for every hour of lives game they watch.
